THIS SEPTEMBER, the people

of Wales are challenged by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to spend 10 days drinking just water in an effort to raise essential funds for the lifesaving charity. Tea, coffee, alcohol and even

orange juice are all prohibited - those taking part are only allowed water for 10 long days. The challenge starts at 5pm on

Tuesday (Sept 13) and ends at 5pm on Friday, September 23. Pwllheli RNLI's Tomos Moore,

who took part in the H2Only challenge last year, said: "The H2Only challenge is extremely tough. Going 10 days without a morning cuppa, a pint after work or a can of fizzy drink will be really hard for everyone taking part. "Every pound raised is so

important to the RNLI. As a charity, we rely on the support and generosity of the public so that we can continue to save lives at sea. All the money raised by people taking on the H2Only challenge will be greatly appreciated." Those who sign up to take part

up as part of a crew with their friends or work colleagues and take on the H2Only challenge together. Just a like an RNLI lifeboat crew, they’ll be able to rely on each other for support when the going gets tough and they hit choppy waters during the challenge. I’d encourage all H2Only participants to stay on the water to help the RNLI stay on the water." If you're brave enough to take

on the H2Only challenge, sign up at Last year, RNLI volunteer lifeboat

crews across the UK and Ireland rescued 7,973 people, saving 348 lives, while the charity’s lifeguards helped 18,181 people and saved 94 lives. Follow @RNLI on Twitter or like

Lampeter hosts Cancer Research Science Cafe CANCER RESEARCH

WALES is hosting a ‘Science Cafe’ in Lampeter this Tuesday (Sept 13), showcasing their exciting new research and development funded by the charity. The cafe in Lampeter forms part of

a series of science cafes hosted across Wales this month, in celebration of the charity funding 50 years of world-class research. The cafes are anticipated to be

a fascinating night of science and discovery, with an insight into the pioneering work of Welsh-based scientists. During the proceedings, a variety

of presentations will take place, illustrating how mutations cause cancer and how scientists in Wales are

training viruses to tackle malignancy. All money raised by Cancer

Research Wales is spent in Wales - the charity spends over £1.5m annually and each Science Cafe will demonstrate how and where this funding is used. Visitors will also learn how

genetics are being used to individualise cancer therapy and find out what cancer stem cells are and the role they play in making cancers more aggressive. Talks and displays will demonstrate

the importance of the immune system to cancer and how the latest innovations in medical imaging and radiotherapy are improving treatments for cancer patients in Wales, and much more. Cancer Research Wales currently funds around 50 projects related

to cancer prevention, early cancer diagnosis as well as new and improved treatments in hospitals and universities across Wales. In the last 15 months, Cancer

Research Wales has also pledged an extra £2.6m for new cancer research projects to mark its 50th anniversary. The team invite you to come and

meet them at the Lampeter Science Cafe event at Victoria Hall, Bryn Road, Lampeter, Ceredigion, SA48 7EE, on Tuesday between 6.45pm and 9pm. Entrance to this event is free,

suitable for 14 years and over and complimentary refreshments will be provided. For further information, please call Dr Lee Campbell on 02920 316976 or search ‘CRW Lampeter’ on Facebook.
